I am curious over the location of THR members and if it shows a trend. I will start. My parents moved to upstate NY when I was 6, ended up in Buffalo in 1972 where I graduated HS 1974. I hung around, always wanting to go West till 1995 when I put my tools in the back of my trunk [I'm a mechanic] and left alone for Alaska. Did not know anyone here, no real idea if I would be able to find a job. And here I still am. Why Alaska? Well I think anyone on this forum will understand.
